You’ve probably been here — before it was renovated. The new Beyond the Box concept store has finally re-opened at the 3rd floor food court area of VMall in Greenhills. A gadget and accessories store? Really? The design is just amazing and well, very out of beyond the box.

Beyond the Box has been my go-to store for Apple accessories and audiophiles will love their line of Marshall iPod speakers and Braven portable travel speakers which I’ve reviewed early this year.

This particular branch was designed by Buensalido Architects.

Boostcase doubles iPhone 4 / 4s battery life in a most elegant fashion

OK guys, if you’re reading this post it means that you most probably own a sexy iPhone 4 or 4s. You’ve made love to it, cradled it in your pocket for days, and have sworn everything to it. You tell everyone how beautiful a phone you have and yes you can even take it underwater. But, deep down, there is this one dark secret that you feel embarrassed about and it becomes a frustration which you try to justify every day: that your iPhone 4s has really crappy battery life. Take it out at 9AM and you’re down to 50% battery after lunch. Sucks doesn’t it?

Unboxing Crumpler Loo Roll with Road Test: Two thumbs up!

As a niche leader in comfortable bags, Crumpler also produces some of the most bizzare schwag. Thanks to the generosity of Charlie Paw at last night’s PhilMUG party we have the chance to do an official unboxing and and first impression run of the Loo Roll, Crumpler’s tissue roll that doubles as a paint by number coloring pad.

In depth review after the break.

PhilMUG 2008 Christmas Party Photo Overload!

In the tradition of PhilMUG Christmas parties, there are always more prizes to be raffled than guests! Everyone went home with something – alongside TuneCard gifts, iCreate magazines and Crumpler mini matches and Loo Rolls! I raffled off five Defactory pouches (made to fit an iPod) and a BodyGuardz iPod touch protector.

A huge thanks to Charlie Paw who also just opened Digital Walker Zoom in Greenbelt 5. The current best seller is the Panasonic Lumix LX3 which retails for about P25,000.00 with accessories!

Here’s a chronological timeline of the photos from preparation to party, after the break! Click to enlarge!
